Yes, they had us working every third weekend for a while. Or being "on-call" for problems in VzW or ATT. No comp time just be lucky to have your job. Also, the US is a "high cost" region. true but which is also where all their money is made. China is a low-cost area, large numbers of subscribers and very little revenue coming from China. I am so glad to be out of that company.
Lots of other companies are hiring right now. Get out before the market correction.
NO, cause I dont get paid to do so.
Isn't it crystal clear. Management doesn't know what they are doing. Just look at the stock price. Every wrong managerial decision has an affect on the stock price.
Yes I have worked the weekends. After a while this got to be a routine where my manager abused our personal weekend time. Remember, you have the right to say NO. If Nokia doesn't pay you for weekends, then you don't owe the company anything. Nokia will lay you off anyway. Spend the valuable time with your self and family. Learn to say NO and don't be bullied into pressure by manager and upper management. That's their job so they will always make you feel guilty. When I use to work there, they use to have a signup sheet for weekend coverage. It was a total waste of time. Everyone in the department got let go, a few at a time, until the company didn't need us. Either way, you are going to get cut. Enjoy your weekends instead. Find a better job.
Yes, Yes, and YES!!!! That's why I left. No life if you work for Nokia. You either end up with cancer, cardiac problem, or high blood pressure. Leave while you're alive so you can at least enjoy the pension crumbs.
USA may be high cost region for Nokia but the salary is low compared to other surrounding companies. Make you work the weekends by playing the guilt card that customers are complaining, but Nokia does not want to pay it's employees for working OT in USA. This company takes advantage of it's employees even when it claims to be ethical. Best thing I ever did was leave Nokia for better pay, better working environment, management staff that know what they are doing, company that's positive in cash, and pays OT.
Definitely YES for years.
Yes, management is all screwed up at Nokia. Has the CEO ever talked to a team of employees one on one so they can tell him how to improve the company. Has he ever introduced himself to an employee in the hallway and asked how the employee was doing? Has he ever asked, Is there anything he can do better with and for this company? Engage with your employees, that's even more important then making your customers happy.
Yes, Not worth working for this company. Find a job elsewhere. You'll get paid more and better working hours and better working environment. Even if you work like a dog, there is no appreciation from the top.
